For some reason that makes me think of the movie Goodbye, Lenin!. Have you ever seen it?
Actually I wrote the script. Unfortunately, it was stolen by a dead beat hippie and 2 months later the film was in theaters. I should have bought one of those miniature guard dogs that were available for hand bags.
I too came to think Pepsi was too sweet; like candy basically. Just finished some today, left over from Thanksgiving, and it almost tastes like Welch's grape at times.
I did manage to catch the Pepsi Throwback in its last days, and it has more of the natural crisp taste, like Coke, though it is still the Pepsi "flavor".
I love Coke floats as well. Make them myself, or get them from McDonald's, though much of this year I have been trying to cut down on all that sugary stuff.
Even though everyone around here calls it 'pop', I call it 'soda'...and I've lived here all my life.
I hate soda in general...I'd pick Pepsi though...I like the charity work they doin.
Plus one of my family members had a run-in with Coca-Cola, and almost lost their job over something really trivial that no one should lose their job over.
